  1. We sailed last year on Seaside with two cabins - one Bella and one Fantastica. There was no difference other than the room service without a fee and a free very small photo. No more drink coupons unfortunately
  2. Those are all new ones for us but it's good information to know. I'm just afraid I'll end up with the usual Nassau stop out of Port Canaveral
  3. I hope they're the same. We were booked on a sweet itinerary that had Roatan, Belize, Costa Maya and Ocean Cay. I'd very like to have that one back
  4. My wife and I are both teachers. Our schools have not made any policies like this for those that travel. Although everyone here is talking about two separate parents who took their kids to NYC and Las Vegas this weekend because "travel is cheap with this virus thing going on" 🙄 We're in rural Ohio 4+ hours away from the cases in Cleveland but I'm sure it will be here soon enough.
  5. Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. I'm fairly new to cruising myself and really just found the experience of being literally away from it all in the middle of the ocean to be relaxing. No stress once your on the ship since everything is there for you. Food, accommodations, entertainment, etc. all provided. But, sorry to hear about your ports, but if you got to Aruba and Curacao then those are the highlights of that itinerary. You can book a ton of different cruises to hit Jamaica and Ocean Cay. Don't give up just yet!
  6. Oh wow lol. Sounds like I'm going to have to work for this OBC.
  7. Thanks. I am currently trying this option. So far I have gotten a $100 OBC as the best offer. I guess it's better than nothing though.
  8. Thanks. I'm actually trying to now transfer the 2021 booking to a TA that promised me an OBC. I am sure that will be a real treat to try and pull off between the website and customer service
  9. Can someone cancel a booking they made online? I can't find that option for the life of me
  10. I think I found a nice lady that is starting to work with MSC and did offer an OBC. However as soon as she called them she was on hold for 30 minutes 😬 Also, quick side question, can I cancel a booking that I made on the MSC website without calling? Again, this is a booking I made not the TA
  11. I am the same way with not expecting anything from the TA. I'm almost terrified to give up daily control over my plans. I would only go with a TA for OBC or other perks. Best I have found so far is $100 OBC and a bottle of wine that I won't drink. I always have wished that they would just send up a 2 liter of Diet Coke instead lol
  12. I do fine with MSC. But, I thought I would do some comparison shopping. We are family of 4 with 1 teen and 1 child and doing the May 31 Armonia for $1100 for an inside with $100 OBC. I can't complain too much but I thought why not give it shot if they offer additional OBC?
  13. Apparently it is lol. Wish I knew what the "best cruise agency" was
  14. Does anyone know if you get MSC Voyager Club and/or Teacher discounts with a TA? I can't get any of them to quote me with my usual discounts. The OBC added without the discounts overall are not a better value thus far.
  15. The no shorts in the MDR was definitely enforced on our two sailings with MSC. In fact, I watched a really nicely dressed older guy in ironed golf khaki shorts and a matching polo get turned away but another guy with cheap jeans and a biker t shirt go into the MDR just fine.
